It’s disappointing that Republicans have killed a bill that would allow voter registration on election day in Kansas.

On Thursday, the House Elections Committee voted 7-5 to reject the bill. The vote was mostly along party lines, with committee Democrats voting for and Republicans against except for one: GOP Rep. J.C. Moore of Clearwater.

Under current law, Kansans must register to vote three weeks prior to an election to be eligible to vote in that election.
